About the Bishopston Supper Club

I’ve always enjoyed cooking for others and entertaining guests at home, in my own relaxed and informal way. For me, food is a great way to communicate and express oneself. After starting a ‘Come dine with me’ style supper club where the hosting was shared between the members of the group, I decided I wanted to host more dinners myself. The guests would then not have to reciprocate but contribute a suggested donation towards the cost of ingredients (£30 per person is recommended for 5-7 courses, which is great value compared to a restaurant, especially when you bring your own drinks). I aim to use seasonal, locally & ethically sourced produce to create homely, simple classics with a pinch of my own personality thrown in. Everything (as much as possible) is homemade, including the bread, and some produce is even homegrown. It is a refreshing change from working in a professional kitchen (I’ve been a professional chef for 17 years) and I love every minute. My guests all sit together so it’s very informal and friendly, great for meeting new people. Guests bring their own drinks, an open mind, and leave their donation in cash in envelopes which I provide at the end of the meal. There is no dress code. Those who are booked in will receive an email a few days before the event containing details such as the address and menu. My style of cooking is rustic and flavourful, mainly classic British & French inspired cuisine. The events are run at a leisurely pace, I usually only do one sitting. I do all the cooking and serving myself, I have an assistant on hand on the day to help with washing up etc. Please note my events are an alternative dining experience, I don’t put on entertainment or guide social interaction. Please prepare to be sociable and entertain yourselves while I feed you delicious food!

Relax and enjoy!

Danielle.

  1. Hi Danielle,

    Love the site here. Found you on Twitter, but if I was closer to Bristol I would definitely be up to attending one of your Supper Clubs – the pics look great!

    Keep up the great work!

    Best,

    Henry

  2. Danielle, Alec and I had the best time last night. The food, the ambience, the company… I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Thank you so much! xx

  3. Last year I had a significant Birthday Milestone to celebrate. So I looked & asked my fellow foodie friends if any of them knew a good chef who would be able to cook for 40 covers at a private dining event.
    Lorna Knapman (founder of the Love Food Festival) suggested Danielle. So I got in touch.
    I have been cooking since I was very young, and used to earn a living from the trade, however things have changed & I’m no longer in catering; however I know what I like. I have been told in the past that I have very high standards.
    Danielle was a joy to work with, the preparations were very easy. Danielle is both flexible and professional.
    The dinner was a great success. Everyone commented on the quality of the food.
    We had a co-designed menu (between the two of us):

    Game Terrine, Plum Chutney & toast

    Confit of Pork belly on a bed of savoy cabbage cooked with bacon, with a pork stock & cider reduction, served with daupinois potatoes.

    Buttermilk pudding with Hix Cherries.


    I sourced some green & blacks mint filled dark chocolate, cakes, and baclava to go with coffee.

    Danielle arranged for booze from both the Bristol Cider Shop & also Grape & Grind.

    Anyone who ever needs a chef, should look no further than Danielle Coombs.

    An excellent experience from start to finish. Thanks again Danielle!

  4. For my birthday earlier in the year I wanted a relaxed sit-down meal in a intimate setting with good food. I had previously had food cooked by Danielle Coombs so knew instantly to bi-pass a restaurant and instead have a supper at Danielle’s house.
    I let Danielle design the menu, which was three courses in total. The vegetarians were well catered for with the main course only being a different dish to the main meat course, and therefore everyone was able to comment on the same dish.
    The chocolate cake dessert was the outstanding dish. Everyone asked Danielle for the recipe!
    The supper at Danielle’s was the highlight of my birthday, it was relaxed, great value for money and the ambiance was incredible. I readily recommend any of my friends and family to Danielle’s for private parties or the supper club.
